This peacock pattern is from the Occhi book by Langwieser and Scharowa. I did a lot of unpicking on this one and it took longer than expected. Some tips if you are thinking of tatting this. Follow the diagram and refer to written instructions only for the stitch count. The photo of the tatting in the book did not correspond closely with the diagram.
Also, the stitch count of the 3rd round of the onion rings should be 4 ds between picots instead of 3.
Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 threads in Ocean Turquoise Dark (#657) and Country Side (#117).
Row 12 completed. I only managed a few rows since the last post. A few more to go but one of them is a huge one - multiples of the centre motif. It will be a while more until it is done. Currently unblocked and some of the chains are folded.
AAA came home one day and announced he met this guy at the River Safari. I haven't had a chance to meet him yet. But I see this fur ball everyday. See the resemblance? What more, both love to chomp on bamboo leaves.
I started over and Row 7 is complete, but not without mistakes in the earlier rows. I was tempted to start yet again but I may not have enough thread. This will have to do. It looks very delicate and that was why I wanted to tat this. This lovely pattern is by Tomoko Morimoto from her book 'New Tatting'.
